Liverpool’s Champions League dream is still alive, even if there is no more hope that the Reds can retain their Premier League crown.
For all their problems domestically this season, Jürgen Klopp’s side had been virtually flawless in Europe before this first leg.
Real Madrid are certainly not the side they once were, but still have enough experience and quality to hurt Liverpool if the Reds are not on their game.
